Alzheimer (English, German, Hardcover): Christoph Ribbat Alzheimer (English, German, Hardcover)
Christoph Ribbat; Photographs by Peter Granser
R519 R411 Discovery Miles 4 110 Save R108 (21%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

"It is as if I have lost myself," described a client of her state of being to the psychiatrist Alois Alzheimer 100 years ago. Today, as the number of old people is constantly growing, more and more people are affected by Alzheimer's disease.

This book is an artistic approach to the topic of Alzheimer's disease. Many of the images are portraits, a classical way to capture an individual's personality. The soft colors and square shapes of the photographs create a striking esthetic without denying that the people shown are continually losing their individuality. Texts and images are a plea to the individual and to society as a whole to get involved with people suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

Looking Backward - A Photographic Portrait of the World at the Beginning of the Twentieth Century (Hardcover): Michael Lesy Looking Backward - A Photographic Portrait of the World at the Beginning of the Twentieth Century (Hardcover)
Michael Lesy
R916 R728 Discovery Miles 7 280 Save R188 (21%) Shipped within 7 - 13 working days

At the turn of the twentieth century, the stereograph was king. Its binocular images revealed the world in vivid, three-dimensional detail. Drawing on an enormous, rarely seen collection of stereographic views, Michael Lesy presents images displaying a riot of peoples and cultures, stark class divisions and unsettling glimpses of daily life a century ago. Lesy's evocative essays reassert the primacy of the stereograph in American visual history. In underscoring the unnerving parallels between that period and our own, Looking Backward reveals a history that shadows us today.

Writings, including articles, letters, and unpublished work, by one of the twentieth century's most influential figures in mathematical logic and philosophy. Alonzo Church's long and distinguished career in mathematics and philosophy can be traced through his influential and wide-ranging writings. Church published his first article as an undergraduate at Princeton in 1924 and his last shortly before his death in 1995. This volume collects all of his published articles, many of his reviews, his monograph The Calculi of Lambda-Conversion, the introduction to his important and authoritative textbook Introduction to Mathematical Logic, a substantial amount of previously unpublished work (including chapters for the unfinished second volume of Introduction to Mathematical Logic), and a selection of letters to such correspondents as Rudolf Carnap and W. V. O. Quine. With the exception of the reviews, letters, and unpublished work, these appear in chronological order, for the most part in the format in which they were originally published. Church's work in calculability, especially the monograph on the lambda-calculus, helped lay the foundation for theoretical computer science; it attracted the interest of Alan Turing, who later completed his PhD under Church's supervision. (Church coined the term "Turing machine" in a review.) Church's influential textbook, still in print, defined the field of mathematical logic for a generation of logicians. In addition, his close connection with the Association for Symbolic Logic and his many years as review editor for the Journal of Symbolic Logic are documented in the reviews included here.

Photographers and Research - The role of research in contemporary photographic practice (Paperback): Shirley Read, Mike Simmons Photographers and Research - The role of research in contemporary photographic practice (Paperback)
Shirley Read, Mike Simmons
R1,045 Discovery Miles 10 450 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This ground-breaking book situates research at the heart of photographic practice, asking the key question: What does research mean for photographers? Illuminating the nature and scope of research and its practical application to photography, the book explores how research provides a critical framework to help develop awareness, extend subject knowledge, and inform the development of photographic work. The authors consider research as integral to the creative process and, through interviews with leading photographers, explore how photographers have embedded research strategies into their creative practice.

Martin Usborne's photo series consists of over forty-five images of dogs gazing silently through car windows, often in the dead of night. The images, which are staged and highly cinematic, evoke a mood of loneliness and longing. They are not so much portraits of dogs as studies in separation: on one level referring to the separation between humans and (other) animals but on another the separation within ourselves, between our everyday selves and the rawer (more animal) parts that we keep locked away. The photographs draw on the work of Edward Hopper and Gregory Crewdson.

Making America Modern - Interior Design in the 1930s (Hardcover): Marilyn F. Friedman Making America Modern - Interior Design in the 1930s (Hardcover)
Marilyn F. Friedman
R949 R737 Discovery Miles 7 370 Save R212 (22%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

A valuable resource for design professionals, historians, and enthusiasts, this book chronicles the development of modern interior design in the United States in the 1930s. With detailed descriptions and more than 200 archival images, design historian Marilyn F. Friedman presents more than 100 interiors by 50 designers and architects, including work by design luminaries Donald Deskey, Paul T. Frankl, Cedric Gibbons, William Lescaze, Tommi Parzinger, Eugene Schoen, Walter Dorwin Teague, Joseph Urban, and Kem Weber. Friedman also draws attention to lesser known male and female designers, including Joseph Aronson, Virginia Conner, Freda Diamond, Robert Heller, and Eleanor Le Maire. Interiors include private commissions, model homes, and exhibition displays that spanned the economic spectrum, from those created for wealthy patrons, such as Walter Annenberg and Abby Rockefeller Milton, to those designed with affordability in mind. The designers of the 1930s had a determination to forge a contemporary style, rejecting the revivalism that had defined American design during the nineteenth century. They drew their inspiration from diverse sources, such as Art Deco, the Bauhaus, the Viennese Secession, Shintoism, and streamlining, and they embraced new concepts in construction, materials, and style. Over the course of the decade they developed a framework for modern interior design that was faithful to core principles of simplicity, practicality and comfort, a conceptual framework that continues to define American modern interior design today.

In low places consequences collect, and in all North America you cannot get much lower than the Imperial Valley of southern California, where one town, 186 feet below sea level, calls itself the Lowest Down City in the Western Hemisphere, and where the waters of the Colorado River sustain a billion-dollar agricultural industry. The consequences of that industry drain from the valley into the accidentally man-made Salton Sea, Californias largest lake and a vital stopping place for migratory waterfowl. Today the Salton Sea is in desperate environmental trouble.

A second river also ends in the Salton Sea. It is a river of dreams, the remains of which may be seen in the failed real estate developments that sprawl beside the sea. As the ending point of both the real Colorado and this river of dreams, the Salton Sea has become emblematic of much of the history of the American West. Its troubling story is masterfully told here in William deBuyss narrative and Joan Myerss austerely beautiful photographs.

The story of Southern California is fundamentally a story about the control of nature. Beginning with the Yuman-speaking tribes encountered by the Spanish in the sixteenth century, deBuys traces the subsequent exploration and development of the region through the Gold Rush of 1849, the government-sponsored surveys that followed, and the inept tinkering with the river by an assortment of irrigation and development interests that resulted in the floods that formed the Salton Sea nearly a century ago. He introduces us to a gallery of rogues and dreamers who saw a great future for this arid wilderness but could never refrain from interference with the forces of nature.

The floods thatproduced the Salton Sea created a vast desert oasis, but the agricultural exploitation of the region, combined with evaporation, poisoned that paradise. The stark beauty of the desert, the engineering feats that have transformed the landscape, and the eerie spectacle of Salton City and its ruined beaches and abandoned yacht club are the subject of Myerss photographs, made over a period of more than ten years. In the last section of "Salt Dreams," deBuys acquaints us with the human and avian denizens of the region, all struggling for survival as the twentieth century draws to a close. The history of chicanery and greed recounted in deBuyss narrative and his empathy with the desert dwellers he and Myers have come to knowhardworking laborers and entrepreneurs who live on both sides of the Mexicali border, eccentrics hiding out in the Salton Desert, pelicans dying of avian botulismare crucial to an understanding of the border issues of today and the impassioned environmental debate on whetherand howto save the Salton Sea.

San Francisco Then and Now pairs photographs from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries with specially commissioned views of the same scenes as they look today. San Francisco is home to some of America's most diverse architecture and design, including the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, the bustling Fisherman's Wharf, the original Chinatown, the Sentinel Building, the Transamerica Pyramid, but most of all of the Victorian, clapboard buildings exemplified by the five "Painted Ladies." The book allows you to visit Coit Tower and Lombard Street-the "crookedest street in the world"-on Telegraph Hill, hop on one of the famous streetcars and travel through eclectic neighborhoods where Victorian sophistication is juxtaposed with modern elements. Stop by the Mission District, which was once home to the Ohlone Indians and Spanish missionaries, and is now full of artists and hipsters. San Francisco has seen the dawn of many countercultural movements. In the 1950s and 1960s, it was home to Beat poets and writers such as Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac, as well as Lawrence Ferlinghetti, founder of the landmark City Lights Bookstore. San Francisco has also seen the birth of social trends that influenced the nation: antiwar protests, the sexual revolution, and the fight for women's rights. Beat, counterculture, and gay and lesbian movements have thrived in such storied neighborhoods as North Beach, Haight-Ashbury, and the Castro. Sites include: Golden Gate Bridge, Palace of Fine Arts, Alcatraz, Fisherman's Wharf, Lombard Street, Coit Tower, Chinatown, Nob Hill, Ferry Building, Bay Bridge, Lotta's Fountain, Union Square, Candlestick Point, Alamo Square, Castro District, Twin Peaks, Haight-Ashbury, Cliff House, Ocean Beach.
